Download the Newsletter2Go plug-in for Magento from our plug-in center.

Log in to your Magento shop as admin and open the Magento Connect Manager, which can be found under “System“ > “Magento Connect“ > “Magento Connect Manager“.

2. Giving API access

2.1 Creating OAuth-Consumer

To authenticate yourself via REST-API, a Consumer Token needs to be created.

Please open “System“ > “Wen Services“ > “REST-OAuth Consumers“.

Click “Add New“ and enter a name and your current admin password. Then, click “Save and Continue Edit“. Copy the values of fields “Key“ and “Secret“. Make sure fields “Callback URL“ and “Rejected Callback URL“ are empty.

2.2 Creating and configurating admin role

Next, access rights for Magento-REST-service have to be created.

Please open “System“ > “Web Services“ > “REST-Roles“.

  1. Click “Add admin Role“ in the upper right corner of the screen. A new screen “Add new Role“ should open.
  2. Enter a role name (e.g. “administrator“). After saving, tab “Role API resources“ should be visible on the left.
  3. Browse to this tab, where “Role Resources“ should be visible now. Select „all“ from the dropdown and save your settings.

When you have completed the installation, it is recommended to test the integration. When all data are correct, you will be forwarded to a Magento page where you authenticate yourself. This step will be skipped if you are already logged in to Magento during the installation.

Next, authorize access for the plug-in.

Click „Authorize“ to complete the set-up of the plug-in successfully.
